About the ticket price,,for nosebleed seats and by the time you figured in parking and a shared snack and drink, I think we spent about $100.
Figure gas going up/back, hotel, eats,ect = pricey.

After things got settled down a bit in the Dome, we spotted some empty seats in a premo spot so we got up the courage, moved, and sat in a really good place.

Highland Park ain't that far away.
It would be fun to gather a bunch of us and do a camp/ride/sit together supercross weekend.
Share expense's and get a big bang out of the weekend.
I like everything about this post. It was really good to see the sportsmanship shown, I hate the tv promotors trying to stir up drama, seems like they were trying to get Reed to play into that..

Highland Park is definitely in my sights.. I would love to join, but given my schedule best to just count me out and maybe i'll get lucky and the stars will align, or they won't and I'll just go once my "probation" period is over at work and I can do swaps.

This group has come a long ways..

We have come a long ways but we still "eat it in soft sand"....

Vic,

Yes we do still eat it in soft sand as you so vividly captured me doing on your new video camera a couple of weeks ago!
